    "I prefer separate apps for the different things I need to do but for folks who want everything all in one place...this is a great way to go. I have used this and a good friend loves it. Give it a try and will likely meet your needs."

    "This looks like a basic file manager. You can read PDFs and other documents, access your files, create ZIP files and all the basic stuff a file manager does. It seems like a decent solution, but it is very new and probably still working out the kinks. I would go with something a little more battle tested."

    "This is probably the smartest file manager ever. Not only can you easily find all of your documents, you can use the same app to read and create documents, listen to your media files, and import and export. It's a great, easy on the eyes interface, and the execution of the app just works. It makes so much more sense than having 3 or 4 different files for things that this one app can take care of. "

    "If you have lots of files that you need to organize and manage, OrganiDoc HD is a great app I found after trying several others but wasn't exactly pleased with their performance. I found the OrganiDoc HD app to perfectly match my needs by being both powerful in its ability to organize and compress files, but also to do so across a large variety of different formats. It's a great app to really help clean up and streamline all your cluttered files."

    "I do a lot of artwork on my iPad Pro in apps like Affinity Pro and Procreate, and generally, need to transfer those files to my Mac so I can finish up in Photoshop or Illustrator. Dropbox has indispensable in improving my workflow as I can transfer large cache of files between my iPad and Mac. This process has been improved even more now with iOS 11 and High Sierra with the introduction of Files."

    "This app looks like it has all the bells and whistles that would really help me organize my files. There is just one small issue. There are almost no reviews and having to pay for an app even 5.99 makes me more particular about checking all the details. The only review that shows is that there is no help or users guide. I might be good with tech but I would rather know and hint or tricks for a new product."
